Moisture in your crawlspace can be damaging and dangerous.
If you live or work in the area of Denver, North Carolina, then you know that many properties in the area have a crawlspace. While this is an often neglected or ignored space, many people don’t always realize that a crawlspace has a large impact on the main levels of the building as well. If you have moisture in your crawlspace, you could have a host of other issues attributed to the moisture, such as:
- Wood Rot- When you have moisture in your crawlspace, the foundation and beams are more likely to be subjected to wood rot. Because moist wood isn’t as strong as dry wood, it is also more susceptible to damage from termites and carpenter ants.
- Buckling Floor Boards- Moisture in the crawlspace often works its way up and can actually damage your floor boards. It can swell hardwood floors, causing them to buckle or even damage the subfloors.
- Poor Indoor Air Quality- There is actually quite a bit of circulation that occurs between the air in your crawlspace and the air in the main spaces of your home. If the air in your crawlspace is moist, damp and breeding mold, then the air in the rest of your property is likely affected as well.
- Mold Growth- Mold grows wonderfully in warm, damp crawlspaces– often with little to no provocation. Removing the moisture and lessening your risk for mold in your crawlspace is possible with our help.
